Wandering Aimlessly


Wandering Aimlessly in the New Year

by Phil Burkhouse


A year ago Big Jake informed me he would like to trap a bobcat, and I told him it should not be a problem.  Under Jim Harrison’s tutelage I have enjoyed consistent success on our wildcats, but last year and so far this year Jake and I have remained bobless.  We are still able to outsmart grinners (opossums) and coon, but the bobcats have evaded us.  Tracks in the mud indicate they are passing by close to our sets, but they refuse to investigate them.  We have tried about everything I can think of; old Jim must be sitting up in heaven grinning at us pilgrims down below.
